Wales vs Gibraltar - team news

Given the match is a friendly against opposition who should, on paper, not present too much of a challenge for Wales, manager Rob Page has confirmed that he will look to give younger internationals the chance of a run out.

The manager said: "I think it's the time to introduce these youngsters and have a look. Some of these were in the younger age groups so I've worked with them, I know their potential and it's lovely seeing them progress.

"They're showing a lot of potential and the benefits of training camps with our under-21s is that we can stagger training and when our training is over we walk over and watch them train.

"If there's any that we think are ready for the next level then we'll give them that opportunity to train with us. We've done it with a couple of players and every time they've stepped up and trained with us they've impressed.

"This for me is the perfect opportunity to show supporters what we've got coming through but for me to have a closer look at them. We're going to have three days working on grass with them and give them the opportunity to play a first-team competitive game."
